Why Organizations Need Digital Leaders With These Five Key Strengths

from Forbes

Much has been said about the critical need for organizations to embrace technology and outpace digital disruption — and I couldn’t agree more. But the critical question in this discussion is: “How?” What exactly are the best practices and strategies companies must master to successfully undergo digital transformation?

My organization set out to answer that question in a study of nearly 3,000 workers and 900 hiring decision-makers across the U.S., and we found many organizations are still struggling to conquer the post-digital frontier.

However, among companies that have mastered the digital realm, we uncovered a common thread: They all have digital leaders within the organization who are committed to embracing, implementing and leveraging digital innovation to drive business success.  

The Common Thread: Digital Leadership

The Digital Revolution has dramatically altered the leadership skills and behaviors needed to succeed in a post-digital landscape. In fact, 95% of surveyed organizations agreed that “a different, new type of leadership is required to effectively address changes in organizational structures and operating models due to digitalization.” Yet only 37% believe they have a strong digital leader in place today. Beyond failing digital initiatives and lack of cohesive corporate strategy, the absence of effective leadership can even negatively impact an organization’s ability to attract and retain top talent.

  1. Leadership is an important concept no matter what type of field we are in. It is very important to have the right type of person in that leadership to motivate and lead others. Now with technology having a bigger role in our workshop, we need to adapt to our surrounding and adjust our leadership styles just a bit to have a more positive impact in our outcomes. In “Why Organizations Need Digital Leaders With These Five Key Strengths,” Professor Shannon goes into detail on five strengths that are needed to be considered as a digital leader. He believes we need to have the ability to inspire others, leveraging technology, encourages collaboration, drive innovation, and manage risk. I completely agree with Professor Shannon and will work on these particular skills in the future to be more successful in my career.

    The digital world is not for everyone as we seen companies excel from this change and other companies who have disappeared because they did not know how to adapt. We need to keep up with the industry and make us feel like we are one step ahead of everyone else. The leader of the organization will need to apply those skills listed above and he/she will see positives trends. One skill I believe is very important is encourage others to collaborate. The world was make up to have everyone work with one another to make any project less difficult and more efficient. Every leader needs to understand and implement this in their workplace. With more brains working together, we can have multiple perspectives and ideas to help the organization move forward. Especially in this digital age, it is important to work more effectively because a company can easier get lost within themselves and become forgotten in their respective market.

    Another important skill for digital leaders is leveraging technology. This is what the digital is all about so if we fail to take advantage of our technology given to us, this will cause potential obstacles for us to succeed. Implementing technology into our business strategy will enhance our productivity and stay up to date with what our competitors are doing as well. I don’t believe the leader needs to has all the technological skills required, but he/she needs to understand the importance of technology and have someone on his/her team that can use the technology to move the company forward.

  2. In the ever evolving and technology-driven environment of business, the need for “digital leaders” is crucial for an organization’s success and development. Whether a company is dealing with domestic or international competition, achieving competitive advantage through technology advancements and digitization has become a necessary component in today’s society, in either maintaining or increasing market capitalization. Retrospectively, a popular example that comes to mind after reading this article relates to Blockbuster’s downfall. Although there were many factors that contributed to its undoing, a prominent reason was the changing competitive landscape in the entertainment/internet space. Companies such as Netflix, Apple, and Amazon began to offer video-on demand and streaming, which bolstered their respective performances and industry outlook in comparison to the “bricks and mortar” model of Blockbuster. When Blockbuster began to “catch up”, it was already well-behind its competitors and ultimately failed to recoup the losses associated with inadequate timing. Reed Hastings, Steve Jobs, and Jeff Bezos placed emphasis on technology integration in their respective companies, which have grown exponentially since the downfall of Blockbuster. As stated in the article, a digital leader must be able to leverage emerging technologies, especially to complement his or her organization’s business model in regards to functionality, efficiency, and feasibility. In this case, these leaders recognized an opportunity to take advantage through innovation involving the internet in strategizing for long-term growth and meeting target expectations, while also eliminating a previously dominant competitor.

    Digital leaders should also be able to encourage collaboration and prioritize this as a valuable asset. With cloud-computing software, leaders in the accounting industry have recognized its benefits in recent years. The firm I interned for utilized a cloud-based system, and it was efficient because of the transparency given between the auditors and clients, in regards to tracking progress for the evidence gathering activities and the preparation of the audited financial statements. Additionally, it expedited the retrieval for important supporting transmittals, such as bank statements and client workbook information. Incorporating this type of software was beneficial for the company in not only expediting certain processes between parties, but it also significantly improved communication between one another.

  3. One thing about technology is that it is constantly changing. It is important to understand where customers are spending most of their time, and where they buy products. Most customers choose to buy their products online, and not in stores. Since so many customers are staying home to buy products, companies have debated on whether, or not, they should use their online presence. Some companies that didn’t adapt to the internet are not in business anymore. With this online presence it is important to have strong leadership to motivate and be successful as a company.
    The five key strengths discussed in the article are inspiring others, leveraging technology, encouraging collaboration, drive innovation, and manages risk. Since there is more companies competing online, there is no better time to have a digital leader. Digital leaders are important today because they can really make a company be successful or not. Being a digital leader means you will have to take risks, be open to ideas, encourage teamwork, embrace new technologies, and be influential. A company with a leader will be set the company up for success.

    • I found this article very interesting and useful for any companies in this period or technologic revolution. The first and third strength “inspires others” and “encourages collaboration” emphasize on personal influence, how an individual can drive people throughout his thoughts, decisions, opinions or actions and how collaboration can be beneficial. The second strength “leverages technology” shows how it is crucial to be able to assimilate technology with the overall business strategy. The fourth and fifth strength are related according to me in the way where technology has to drive innovation. Innovation means taking risks that means a manager has to be able to innovate being conscious of all the risks taken and anticipate the worst possible outcome by planning a plan accordingly.
      Digital leadership refers to the strategic use of a company’s digital assets to achieve business goals, it can be addressed at both organizational and individual levels. On the organizational level, the sandwich company Subway is a good example of digital leadership. the CIO Carman Wenkoff has hired a bank of technology, marketing and operational professionals in order to manage better the website, mobile apps, payment systems and loyalty programs. This include a reorganization of departments with data analytics, campaign management, software development specific to digital, user design experts and graphic design. This will help others in the business to thrive by learning valuable skills and gaining practical experience from new forward-thinking recruits. On the individual level, the 5 strengths cited by the article are fundamentals. When being asked in an interview with LinkedIn Executive Editor Daniel Roth, Jack Welch, CEO at GE talked about the business perspective of being a digital leader. He said “When they trust you, you’ll get truth. And if you get truth, you get speed. If you get speed, you’re going to act”. Trusting the people in charge of digital assets is essential for a business. It brings faster all the data informations needed to make more logical and efficient decisions which will create competitive advantage for a company.



  4. The article by Jim Link is very helpful to rising Seniors who will soon be thrown into the job market. At Rider, professors strongly encourage and promote technology usage and involvement, which will help when seeking out jobs or even in current internships/co-ops.
    From the article, it’s clear that hiring managers in various organizations truly want individuals who can manage the ever changing digital world. 95% of the study understand that a different type of leadership is required to succeed in this new market, but only 37% actually have a capable employee in this position. Without a capable employee managing the digital aspect of their company, a corporation could end up with poor marketing and not attract as many ‘top-tier’ applicants because they aren’t a front-runner in their industry. In order to prevent this, Link explains that companies need to identify and encourage their digital leaders in order to stay on top. While this article is geared towards encouraging companies to find these individuals, I believe it’s incredibly helpful to refine my skill-set to better fit this category, and I feel the same applies to any college student reading it.
    The first key identifier is the ability to inspire others. This is crucial for a digital leader because this technology and these ideas are new, and, to some people, confusing. A digital leader has to be able to inspire their team to hop on board with the new actions and to develop their own opinions – this can only be accomplished by encouraging the team to stay open-minded. Next, the digital leader can leverage technology, meaning they understand what technology can do for them, and how to use it. As technology continues to grow and evolve, it is important for leaders to understand these changes to continue using the products. Collaboration is also important, but I think driving innovation is the next crucial topic. A company will never last if it doesn’t have innovative employees, and if they can be innovative while using or incorporating new technology, it just increases the longevity of the company. Finally, Link mentions risk management as another key indicator of a digital leader. While it is encouraged to be courageous and to be innovative, it needs to be within an appropriate range of risk. A company doesn’t want someone too stuck in previous ways to make a change, but they also cannot risk someone who tries to change things too much too soon – change must be gradual to reduce the chance of it turning out poorly, and a digital leader is aware of this.
    I know that I have some of these skills, but I know I can always improve and reading this article gave me some insight. I now know what to look ahead to when seeking ways to better myself for the corporate world.

  5. As a current college student, I have come to realize that digital literacy is a skill that many working individuals in corporations do not have. Moreover, some companies aren’t adapting to technology fast enough, which is leaving them behind in this innovative world.

    As a current business student, the first thing my college promotes is technology, and how it can help organize, innovate, and help with the tasks assigned. Thus, I believe that recent college students, although lack corporate experience, would become to be great leaders due to their digital literacy. The article even discusses how the definition of today’s leader has changed, from the traditional set of skill to five new digital set of skills. One of the skills that I agreed with was, inspiring others. It is a combination of traditional leadership that includes authority, team-orientation, collaboration, with personal influence. The trait of personal influence is what makes him/her a digital leader. It gives the leader the ability to inspire others in discussing the goals of the company and gives them motivation and determination in not only doing their jobs, but also bringing innovation to conduct their jobs more effectively and efficiently. Another skill set (out of the five skills) that I believe would help any corporation or organization is managing risks. When a company is coming up with any sort of innovation there is always that chance that it will not work out. However, if a company doesn’t take the risk then they is a chance of falling behind in this digital world. Thus, a professional leader in today’s world must take calculated digital risks that encourage team members to innovate and perform tasks efficiently and effectively.

    I personally believe, as a student entering the corporate world, adapting to technology and becoming a leader will come naturally. For instance, last week at one of my interviews, the interviewer and I were discussing the changes in technology and how their company would be adapting. He mentioned that the only reason that they were looking for students from the college I am enrolled in is due to the SAP certification that the college offers. The company was actually making a shift from another system to the SAP system and would like to have students that are familiar with the technology on hand. As a current student in the SAP certification program, I felt like I had the upper hand. Again, this example explains how important it is to adapt to technology and welcome to constant innovation.

  6. Technology is changing every facet of life including leadership. More specifically, digital leadership at the top of companies. It is no secret one must be technological savvy in order to work today. The question is how much and how much do companies have to adapt along with their leadership. This article covers the most important points of why having a digital leader will only help a company succeed. It has been stated by workers that a leader needs to be tech savvy in order to lead, but less than half the people think their bosses are actually strong digital leaders. I personally believe the number of strong digital leaders will only increase because technology is only becoming more common.
    The one point that stuck with me the most was how digital leaders must encourage collaboration. To me I think this point was by far the most important. This portion stated that collaboration of organizations around the world benefit the company. I think this is true and is being done more efficiently because of the technology provided to us. Offices around the world for the same company are more easily able to reach each other by phone, email, or video chat. I personally believe video chat is making it easier for people to get work done. This allows people to put a face to a name. They then begin to build trust and makes the decision-making process go faster. This portion talks a lot about effective collaboration, it even gave the idea for leaders to not only give directions but participates in team activities. For me when I am working I appreciate it when a leader listens to others ideas instead of just making one final decision. This also ties in with the fact that some people are more advanced technological wise than others. Leaders must learn everyone strengths and give tasks that are tailored to them.

  7. We are in a world right now where pretty much everything in business is going digital and online. This article discusses the importance of having a person in a company that is the so called “leader” of this transition, to basically make sure the company is where it needs to be in terms of its online footprint, in order to be successful. I think that this is a very important position in a company, that many companies are lacking, and I think making sure every company has someone managing the internet aspect of the business can be very helpful, but often might be getting overlooked. According to a statistic in this article, only 37% of companies surveyed, thought they had a strong “digital leader”. That is a pretty small number, and definately should be going up as the years go on. The article then discusses how the “leader” should have 5 qualities to ultimately be successful in what he’s doing for the company. The first is that they should be inspiring to others, meaning that they should be able to make things more personal. I agree that this first one is very important, because the more you’re able to connect with people, the better. The second involves the leader being able to take new technologies and programs, and put them to use and stay up to date with them. I think this one is very crucial because you have to be able to move with the times, and technology is constantly changing, so having someone who is able to keep up with this is very beneficial. The third one that’s talked about is the ability to encourage and foster collaboration among the company. This definitely needs to happen for a company to work together as a unit, and technology and programs can only help this, and an internet leader will only be able to help this along by figuring out what types of programs work for the people at their company. The fourth one is for this person to be able to drive innovation, and I agree because this goes along with being able to keep up with the constantly changing times. And the fifth one is that the internet leader needs to be able to manage risk, as with all technology and computer programs, there is risk when it comes to hackers, data breaches etc. I think that someone successful in this position would ultimately be able to continually move with the times and ever changing technology, while still keeping a level head and be able to analyze the risks of what they are engaging in.

  8. This article is a perfect example of how technology has affected nearly every aspect of our lives, which in this case is the workforce. Just look at this statistic, “95% of surveyed organizations agreed that “a different, new type of leadership is required to effectively address changes in organizational structures and operating models due to digitalization.” In other words, academic and extracurricular certifications that were once looked upon as exemplary have now taken a new low. Throughout reading this article one thing that strongly stuck with me was the realization of how expectations are increasingly higher due to the influence of disruptive technologies. Like the article addresses, company CEO’s and leaders are now not only required to excel in their specified field, but also expected to understand and develop an expertise in the development of technologies. Additionally, while reading this I couldn’t help but realize how applicable this was to my generation and especially future generations that will be growing up with the continuous advancements in technology. In terms of my personal application to this article, I am a senior completing my undergraduate degree and have recently applied to master’s program in Germany. Originally, I was planning on applying to a master’s program in Management; however, the university that I wanted to apply to did not offer solely a program in Management. Instead, they offered a Master in Management & Technology degree. This is exactly what this article is referring to, society needs leaders that have just as strong a leadership and management background as they do in technology – which is what the university I am applying to recognizes, and chooses to fulfill. In my personal opinion I still think the possibilities of technology these days are absurd; however, the reality is that there is no limit to what technology can influence. And the reason for this is because there is so much of the technological field that hasn’t even been discovered or tapped into.

  9. The coming of the digital age should be no surprise to anyone at this point. Nor should the idea that this new era of business will require new leadership, as well as new leadership techniques. The implementation of the internet and vast other amounts of technology have made running a business almost like a race. A race that will ultimately decide the fate of companies across the world. As more and more people become interconnected to the web, it is assumed that businesses will have a harder time to attract customers to their business due to the infinite amount of other advertisements consumers will encounter while online. A very effective solution to avoid this problem is having someone in charge that knows how to make a face for his or her company online. From my point of view, it seems as though there are not as many businesses with youthful leadership because older generations are clinging to their power, as well as old ways, thinking that they can get buy like they always have. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. In the past, businesses had other media outlets and forms of advertisement such as newspapers, television and even billboards to market their products. All of these platforms combined do not outweigh the value an internet presence can give to a company. It also seems to me that the companies that are trying to have a strong online presence are doing so by having old leadership delegate these tasks to younger “think tanks”. In most cases these older leaders take credit for the ideas of these groups. It is unfortunate yet, there is not much that can be done to protect these young adults due to the agreements they likely signed with these companies. In a perfect world, as generations started to reach the age of retirement and passing on leadership positions to the youth, it would be a gradual learning process with a smooth transition that everyone expects. However, in our world, it is often seen that when these scenarios arise, the struggle for power decreases productivity on all levels until the stalemate is broken and the power void is filled, usually not with the right person. If we want to move towards a better future we must allow those who will outlive us into that future learn and succeed.

  10. The idea that businesses across the world need leaders who embrace technology is not exactly surprising, considering where our society is at. I can see this idea being applied in my own life, as when I have had teachers/professors who use today’s technology in their classes, I get more out of the class. I am able to learn about the subject matter while also learning about problem solving using modern devices and programs. When I am forced to use pen and paper, it feels like we are going back in time and I am just not able to learn that way. That is why I feel that my generation will be prepared to be these digital leaders in the very near future, once we graduate college and enter the work force. In this article, it found that 37% of organizations they surveyed felt they had a digital leader currently in place helping their organization progress. I think this has to do with the idea that many people who are in these leadership roles did not grow up around the technology we have today and never bothered to learn it. I mean, they got to where they are without it so why bother? But, as corporations start to fall behind to more technologically efficient competitors, being able to use technology or at least being willing to learn it will play a major impact on who is hired and who is left behind, if it has not already.
    The specific qualities that the article says that are important are: Inspires Others, Leverages Technology, Encourages Collaboration, Drives Innovation, and Manages Risk. At the surface level, these are all pretty self-explanatory. Inspiring others is always something leaders do, and it is even more important when talking about technology because of the learning curve and commitment required to working collaboratively in the digital world. Leveraging technology is obvious, we want leaders to be able to get the most out of whatever tools they have, digital or not. Then, the next two relate back to the first two, because encouraging collaboration as a lot to do with inspiring others, and driving innovation is the same thing as leveraging technology since leaders need to use the technology to the best of their abilities in order to innovate. Finally, managing risk is super important, since technology creates so many more risks that we have never seen before. The leaders will have to be able to handle these risks without hurting the company.

  11. It is very hard to become a leader, or boss, at work because it takes a certain amount of skills to hold such a position. There is a reason why there is always more workers rather than bosses within every company. A lot of people are able to master the skill of working, but few are able to master the skill of working and use that skill to help lead others in the work that they do. Take into consideration the fact that technology is truly taking over the world, so now leaders not only have to figure out ways to guide people, but they have now do it with technology involved. When people are able to master this skill, then they can truly call themselves leaders and deserve to be in the position that they are in. A good boss or leader is able to figure out every one of his or her employee’s best position and how they should be utilized within the workplace. Every employee is different and works in many unique and different ways. What may work for somebody is not guaranteed to work for everybody else. Take for the example, a boss of the company has a certain way that he or she does their work and they force that exact way upon their employees that is not good because that boss is then limiting the work that can actually be done. The best bosses will instead tell their employees the work that has to be done and just as long as it gets done then everything is good. Some people like to work with a deadline and others like to work knowing that they have some time to do it, but in the end just as long as the work gets done then everything should be alright. I currently hold a position where I am a boss of a good number of people, and one of the things that I always tell my employees is that just as long as you get the work done that I ask you and you follow the rules then everything is okay with me. I’ll even reward them if I see that they are doing a great job or going above and beyond what is required of them. Being a boss is not easy, but figuring out how to get the best out of your workers should always be top priority because they are just as important as the work itself.

  12. In our digital age, society and the professional world call for a distinct type of leader to lead companies into the new technological age. Offices with once sequestered cubicles are becoming ones with highly-collaborative, technologically-advanced workspaces with emphasis on fluidity and the progression of the digital age.
    What I think is interesting about this article and is something to ponder is, are these skills that we are emphasizing in business schools across the country at the university-level? At Seton Hall, I believe that we are doing a great job of instilling these values in our students. The Laptop Initiative and Senior Assessment are just two things that would align with ideas shared in the article. At Stillman, we want our students to be leaders going into the second digital age, so we must prepare our students accordingly with what the workplace wants.
    But are there are also ideas and concepts in the article that we cannot teach? We can enable innovation, but can we make people more innovate? You cannot make a person more creative per se, but you can exploit them to opportunities that cause them to exercise their brains. You cannot make someone more inspiring or change their work ethic, but it possible to inspire a person, who in turn may inspire others. You cannot force people to work better in groups if they are an introvert or uncomfortable in group settings, but it is possible to tailor projects to fit their strength and maximize their abilities.
    Something that I believe Link missed in this article is when talking about practice and strategies that we are going to use in the workplace for leadership is, “how are we going to use these principles and technology to help each one of our employees add the most amount of value to the company?” Part of leadership is 100 percent knowing your employees, and I feel like if we are going defer to tech in some sort of robotic way, will leadership even be a craft? Or are we turning ourselves back into the archaic, industrial factory-like society we once were, but just with a different medium? What we need to do is make sure that corporate strategy uses tech as a way to add more value instead of using to substitute it for the current value that is being created.

  13. There is no doubt that leadership is key to any business a person may tap into, eventually making it their career. Having great leadership is what makes a business successful. Though we commonly see the advice of encouraging collaboration, being the inspiring figure towards those in your group, and making sure that organization is key when it comes to leadership, along with other common pieces of advice for leaders, with this article, we come upon more factors that involve being technologically literate and having a key knowledge of technology. “Why Organizations Need Digital Leaders With These Five Key Strengths, published on Forbes by Jim Link, elaborates more on this specific topic of having a sense of knowledge of technology being a key part to leadership. According to this article, it states, “The Digital Revolution has dramatically altered the leadership skills and behaviors needed to succeed in a post-digital landscape. In fact, 95% of surveyed organizations agreed that ‘a different, new type of leadership is required to effectively address changes in organizational structures and operating models due to digitalization.’” Jim Link establishes five key factors to having digital leadership, which include the following: (1) Inspires others, which is considered “key to securing genuine commitment to objectives, cultivating satisfying working relationships, developing careers and ultimately driving higher productivity;” (2) Leverages technology, this being considered crucial, with surveys showing that “94% of workers agree ‘technological innovations are influencing what is required for a leader to be successful;’” (3) Encourages collaboration, which is also considered important because it allows others to become more engaged and connected; (4) Drives innovation, which expects leaders to “be open to new ideas and find ways to test theories, develop relationships with others who are known for their innovation and challenge themselves to view every problem from diverse perspectives;” (5) Manages risk, meaning that a leader must be able to take healthy risks, which can help them learn their mistakes, “[making] the attempt all the more important.”

    To me, I believe that this article does help those who may want to own their own business or for those who want to learn how to be a great leader, in general. This article steers you in a different direction while maintaining some of the same ideas and concepts of being a successful leader. It is true that it is important to have some knowledge of technology because of the advancement of technology that continues to expand today, and technology is used on a daily basis. Like Professor Shannon encourages us, students, we should all be technologically literate and gain some knowledge of technology because it can benefit us in the future.

  14. It is a little unsettling that only 37% of companies believe they have a strong digital leader in place. The digital era is among us already, and many articles and discussions we focused on in class have spoken on how to adjust to technological advancements. One of my favorite articles was the one that talked about getting rid of paper in the office. It would make it more efficient and cleaner in an office space. This ties in to how effective digital leaders can adjust to the new work place. Everyone needs to focus on leveraging technology to stay ahead of the curve, instead of ignoring it and falling behind competitors. The advice to ask a company about their digital strategy is important during an interview. If they do not have an answer or do not know what you are speaking about, they are not in a good position to remain successful. In order for a worker/company to be efficient, understanding how to use data and align tech with business strategies is in the best position.
    Nowadays, team building and technology can go hand-in-hand. Leaders can leverage apps like skype, slack, and groupme to effectively engage teams and allow for collaboration. CEO’s agree that they are always looking to innovate, so to do that everyone must be on the same page to move forward anyway. That way, creativity is fostered all on the same platform for everyone to respond to accordingly. Quickly communicating and analyzing data is the first step.Taking calculated risks and capitalizing on high rewards yields the most success. If I was a business leader I would build a team of professionals that are well versed on the impacts of digital disruption. Truthfully, taking that initiative and prepping for the changes to come is an investment that is worth it. Keeping everyone aware and engaged on issues and using those issues to better future positions is the best way to brace for the disruptions that businesses have never seen.

  15. Leadership is important in any business, especially when transformation is going to take place. In this article the topic of digital transformation is discussed, and the importance of having a leader when the change is occurring. Everyone knows that a business or company needs some sort of leader that’s why there are people in different/higher positions (managers, supervisors, etc.). I like how this article went into detail about “the five key competencies of successful leaders” and explained all these important components. The five points they made were that a leader should inspire others, leverage technology, encourage collaboration, drive innovation, and manage risk. All of these were very informative and as a business who is trying to take on a digital transformation, each and every point is important and necessary. The idea of encouraging collaboration and managing risks go hand in hand because these are both part of a new beginning. When going from non-digital to digital being innovative is important because that is what a transformation needs, as well as being able to take risks. Business leaders would have to understand that everything is not sunshine and rainbows all the time, risks are necessary even if it’s scary to take.
    My favorite one of these points is the idea of inspiring others. This is important because if a group of employees feels discouraged, or unmotivated it will not help the cause of digital transformation. Inspiring others “is key to securing genuine commitment to objectives, cultivating satisfying working relationships, developing careers and ultimately driving higher productivity and performance” (Link). Inspiring others is a big deal in a workplace because if the leader of the pack is not motivated, or has a hard time showing that motivation to everyone else, it will have a huge influence on the rest of the workplace.
    I do think that “the digital revolution” as described in the article, is a time for change. It not only changes the workplace from non-digital to digital, but it changes the way leaders must behave. Going completely digital is in the benefit of the business and the idea behind this is the great innovation that will happen for the company. I agree that digital transformation is great for a workplace but that means that the staff must transform their ways as well, especially leaders.
